People who were distressed and worried when persons unknown vandalised the famous Fairy Tree on the Comeragh Mountain Drive earlier this year are extremely concerned that the replacement tree has now also been damaged.

And they claim that their warnings of revenge by the ancient Sidhe (Fairies) have already come to pass as large areas of heather, ferns and grassland in the vicinity of the damaged Fairy Tree have become barren and all growth appears to have withered and died.
